Opportunity descriptionPractical ways for mental health workers to align everyday practice with the human rights principles that underpin supported decision-making
Contemporary mental health service delivery and legislation is informed by human rights frameworks and supported decision-making (SDM). But how do mental health workers align their practice to these principles?
This workshop is designed to help mental health workers better understand SDM by examining its underlying principles, and by investigating the ways in which it differs from shared decision-making. It also provides participants with practical opportunities to further develop their supported decision-making skills for everyday practice. This workshop is co-presented by a consumer and a nurse.
HOW DOES SDM WORK?
SDM recognises that people communicate their needs and preferences in different ways. It involves collaborating with consumers to help build preferences into choices, and choices into formal decisions.
